The Bible tells us to avoid the appearance of evil to flee from immorality, and not to cause anyone to stumble or be offended, not expose ourselves to constant temptations to immorality. The Bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin and ultimately because of their own free will which they choose to do wrong. Since He that committeth sin is of the devil. We must live our lives in purity before a sinful and wicked world. We should not be living according to their standards but according to God's standard in the Bible. If any one has committed sexual sins they need to genuinely repent and ask Gods forgiveness since REPENTANCE (Godly sorrow brings repentance) causes true salvation, and salvation gives a person the power to live free from sin and live Godly life. If you are continually falling back into this sin either you are not following good godly principles or you have not truly had godly sorrow and repentance.
